Charles M. Schulz-Sonoma County Airport Welcomes Enhanced Sonoma County Airport Express Service
Travelers now have another transportation option to and from the Charles M. Schulz-Sonoma County Airport
Santa Rosa, CA | October 07, 2022
This week, Sonoma County Airport Express will begin shuttle services to passengers flying in and out of the Charles M. Schulz-Sonoma County Airport (STS). The current pick-up and drop-off locations that customers have used when traveling to San Francisco and Oakland International Airports will now also be used to offer a convenient, comfortable and affordable ride to fly local at STS.
“Sonoma County residents and visitors have periodically requested this service, especially as many of them already knew our buses were operating along the route,” said Sonoma County Airport Express General Manager Tony Geraldi.
This alternate transportation option is critical to the Airport as the number of people flying in and out of STS has increased significantly over the last two years.
“After the pandemic, the airline passenger count has gone way up. We’re seeing nearly 2,000 passengers a day and having direct transportation to the Airport is fantastic,” said Airport Manager Jon Stout. “This new service will save passengers from having to park their cars, deal with traffic or ask someone for a ride.”
Airport Express will begin pick-ups for passengers to STS at their southern-most location in San Rafael, with additional stops in Petaluma, Rohnert Park and Santa Rosa.
“Our collaboration with STS is another opportunity for us to provide better service to the community. We’ll be offering a convenient travel option, and along with it, removing some vehicles off the road and reducing greenhouse gasses,” said Geraldi.
The route is now available for $20 per person, per trip. To learn more about the service, visit airportexpressinc.com.
